British actor Rowan Atkinson
has been discharged from hospital after sustaining a fractured shoulder blade in a car crash.
The 56-year-old funnyman was hospitalised after crashing his luxury McLaren F1 supercar, which spun off the road, hitting a tree and a road sign before catching fire. Atkinson left the medical facility in Peterborough, England in a wheelchair on Friday and was driven away in a private ambulance.
The accident occurred as Atkinson was driving home following work on his new movie Johnny English Reborn, in which he plays a hapless secret agent.
"I understand he has a fractured shoulder blade which is very painful and why he needed to stay in overnight. He is shaken but not stirred. I think he was in pain and had painkillers," the Mr Bean star's agent Peter Bennett-Jones told Britain's Daily Mirror.
"The car has been removed and I'm sure he won't want it to be written off. He will want to get it repaired straight away ...
"He will be very rattled and I think he'll want to keep as low profile as possible."
